Benton Harbor Lunchbox
A Benton Harbor Lunchbox is old parlance for an amateur-radio transmitter-receiver (ham radio) that uses many of the same components for both transmission and reception. It was made by Heathkit Co. Of Benton Harbor, MI, in the 1960s. Brilliant in it's simplicity, intuitive, and fully functional, it harnesses the power of the airwaves to bring lonesome souls together. Aspiring to a similar set of principles as the rudimentary technology that is their namesake, Benton Harbor Lunchbox, a Chicago-based folk/rock 'n' roll group, make music that has but one sole purpose: to transmit and receive the collective consciousness... sometimes emotionally, sometimes cerebrally, and sometimes viscerally, like a kick to the crotch. Their literate, well-crafted, unpretentious, and undomesticated brand of urban American folk/rock 'n' roll speaks for itself.
